The prize is awarded each year to a museum that, in a prominent and innovative way, offers visitors a unique museum experience and works with the dissemination of knowledge in a creative way.

"It feels fantastic that we are nominated. It's great and can give us new experiences and European exposure," says Olof Hermelin, Museum Director at Östergötland Museum.

Earlier this year, the museum was also named Museum of the Year in Sweden. Together with 50 other museums, they are now competing for the European award. The winner will be announced in May next year.
